    Who is the same as me? On studying guided tours of a mosque2015Inngår i: Conference Booklet, 2015, s. 21-21Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    For my thesis, I have analysed the guided tours of the great mosque in Stockholm from a postcolonial perspective. Part from participant observations of the tours, I have interviewed both guides and visitors. In this paper, I wish to explore how the knowledge production is affected by the makings of differences between both researcher and researched as well as between different participators in the study. What is the role of the body and appearance as a base for my analyses and interpretations of the tours? In the intersecting field of religion, race and gender bodily signs are interpreted and connected with certain frames of intelligibility, for example, making a female white Muslim guide coming off as eerie to one of the visitors. Further, in the analyses and descriptions of the tours I have been much more cautious about how I describe the (mostly Middle Eastern) guides than I have been in describing white Swedish visitors resulting in that I have described many of them as quite one dimensional and less complex in the analyses. This is, on the one hand, the result of taking into consideration the on-going othering of Muslims in Sweden and the Western world. On the other hand, in trying to resist that very othering of Muslims I reiterate it instead, in the sense that I as a researcher seem to perceive the guides as more other and therefore become more vigilant of what I believe that I can grasp.

    Expressive forms in motion2015Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Expressive forms are often associated with certain places or nations, or with certain groups of people categorized by nationality, ethnicity, age, social class or sexual orientation. Since my dissertation on Middle Eastern dance in Stockholm (2010), I have a continued interest in expressive forms in motion. What happens when music and or dance associated with a certain cultural or social context is performed in another setting, or by people without the “correct” origin or identity? Such transferred expressive forms are often criticized and considered as lacking in authenticity, since they are performed in the wrong place, by the wrong people or in the wrong way.  The performances are also judged in relation to notions of naturalness, antiquity and consistency over time. Cultural forms spread from the West to the rest of the world can be criticized for producing uniformity and cultural imperialism. When cultural forms from Africa, Asia or Latin America are adopted by Westerners, the performers are often criticized for cultural appropriation or exotization. This critique is important and may often be justified, given the unequal distribution of power and recourses in the world.  However, there is a weakness in this line of argument, since it rests on the apprehension that cultural forms have “natural” connections to certain people and particular places. Taken too far, this argument contradicts the idea of cultural identities, nationality and ethnicity as social constructions, possible to change. It also contradicts the notion of globalization and the flows of people, information and culture. Regardless if the inspiration goes from the West to “the Rest” or in the opposite direction, cultural forms are most often received in creative ways, mixed and transformed into new, local varieties. These new esthetic expressions may entertain, please or provoke. There may also be further implications, since expressive forms and performances contribute to creating, challenging and recreating communities as well as antagonisms.

    Getting it right: Learning new movements, manners and attitudes2013Konferansepaper (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    Middle Eastern dance classes, courses for jobseekers and an integration project for Somali refugees are examples of how techniques of the body are taught in processes including transmission of attitudes and ideals. There are, however, differences in the participants’ relative power and status.

    Right manners for convivial coexistence2015Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Bodily and material aspects of human encounters can be the cause of incomprehension and irritation. Behaviours, movements and clothes that are viewed as polite and correct in one context, may be considered totally wrong in others. This makes it harder to achieve conviviality among people from diverse cultural backgrounds. Using ethnographic examples from Sweden, this presentation focuses attempts to overcome such difficulties and thus pave the way to smooth coexistence. Somali immigrants with no previous schooling have not been successful on the Swedish labor market. They have great difficulties understanding how the Swedish society works and what is expected of them. In integration-project Rätt steg (Right step), illiterate Somali refugees get information about Swedish society and are taught new skills, e.g. the “right” way to greet a person (eye-contact and firm handshake). Participants are told how to raise children in Sweden (do not hit them!). They are also encouraged to exercise more and avoid wearing big headscarves. Bodies and minds are thus adapted to the perceived ideals and norms of Swedish society. The ways of Somali refugees are ascribed almost no value in Sweden. The subordinate position of the participants is obvious to everyone, including the teachers.  Sometimes the participants resist the attempts at changing their behavior. However, since they realize that adaption to the Swedish norms is unavoidable, the vast majority of participants deem the course very valuable.  Mastering the basic codes of Swedish society can lead to greater freedom of action, within very limited conditions.

    Who’s knowledge is subjective? Ethnological Reflexivity in the Era of Intersectionality2015Inngår i: Conference Booklet, 2015, s. 20-20Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    There are intersecting and shifting reasons behind why and how produced knowledge and knowledge producers are credited or discredited. Here, I will reflect over how and in what ways the ever-changing position of the researcher has an impact on how the produced knowledge is perceived within the discipline of ethnology. Furthermore, I will analyse what shape the prio-ritization of knowledge has within the field of ethnological research. I will particularly focus on the hierarchy of knowledge production based on (a.) the research subject matter and (b.) researchers’ intersecting and shifting subject positions. Drawing on discussions of reflexivity and positionality in some of the contemporary ethnological research, for the purpose of this presentation, I aim to demonstrate how some researchers’ positions in regards to their research subject is emphasized while others go untouched. Why is it that some researchers embody the knowledgeable subject regardless what type of research subject they choose to conduct? For instance, while feminist and postcolonial researchers’ knowledge productions have often been disqualified as both subjective and highly political, the other researchers easily can disclaim their subjective position and political agenda. In other words, who is perceived as ‘insider researcher’ and how this has an impact on how the produced knowledge is perceived is therefore closely linked to notions of gender, age, race, and sexuality.

    Old? Older? Elderly? Co-constructing ageing in research2015Konferansepaper (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    In an ongoing study I use wardrobe interviews to explore experiences of ageing and cultural meaning making of age. The informants, aged between 62 and 94, talked of style preferences in dress and of norms in relation to age appropriateness and to bodily changes.

    In my paper I will discuss age categorisations from a methodological point of view. Different divisions have been discussed for when people are to be considered “old”. In my research I have used 60 as a lower age limit, with no upper one. The study’s purpose is to explore, problematize and nuance experiences of ageing from an emic perspective, with attention to ethnographic detail: letting the women’s voices be heard. I do not see the age category of “older” or “elderly” as monolithic but as diverse. For instance, health and mobility have an impact on feeling old, so that an informant in her sixties, with health problems express feeling old and tired, whereas a chronologically older and healthy informant does not. When submitting articles information of the informants’ chronological age is often requested by reviewers. Specifying this in a sense contributes to making age an explanation and description.

    In my presentation I will focus on different categorisations in terms of age, used by the informants and in theoretical literature. I intend to explore dilemmas and ambiguities around this, in relation to work in an ethnographic tradition, not striving for finite answers but opening for fruitful questioning and discussions.

    Youth, Religion and Participation: Theoretical and Methodological Approaches2013Konferansepaper (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    This roundtable session focus on religious and social change as well as democracy and political culture, startingfrom the role of youth in these processes. The role of religion in young people’s participation is a key theme inthe cross-disciplinary network “youth and religion” connected to the Impact program. Participation here includesboth citizens’ “vertical” capacities to make their voices heard and influence decision-makers in the political system(e.g. via elections or civic organizations and social movements) and their “horizontal” capacities to communicateand cooperate with other people (within society at large or certain associations/communities). The participants ofthe session will present influential theories and methodologies used to study participation among youth within theresearch disciplines they represent (i.e. sociology of religion; theology; ethnology; political science). This will befollowed by a joint discussion of how these theories and methodologies have approached religious involvement witha particular focus on youth’s participation in politics, civil society as well as social media and the internet. The aim ofthe session is to look for common themes and new issues that can guide contemporary studies of participation in thefield of youth and religion. The session is open to conference participants interested in the issues discussed.

    Looking Through, to Look At: Glass and the Cultural Challenges to Monitoring, Measuring, and Mediating Bodies2015Inngår i: In the flow – People, Media, Materialities: ACSIS conference 15-17 June 2015, Norrköping / [ed] Johanna Dahlin & Tove Andersson, Norrköping: ACSIS, Linköping University , 2015, s. 32-32Konferansepaper (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    Today, consumers face a rapidly expanding market of technology designed to measure, monitor, and mediate the status of their bodies, and communicate it to the surrounding world. Jawbone, Apple Watch, Nike Run Keeper, and the GoPro Camera are all pieces of body monitoring technology that were vying for consumer attention in 2015. But what types of cultural roots lay behind this interest in high-tech body monitoring accessories? How could an interest in body monitoring develop, and what types of knowledge were they predicated upon? In order to approach these questions, this paper opens by examining some of the most common and low-tech items in our homes and lives from ordinary glass and bathroom scales to home lighting.

    Research Cooperation, Fictive Kinship, and International Knowledge Transfer among Scientists2015Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The focus of the paper is how junior scientists’ use their peer’s network when applying for positions abroad in order to develop their scientific training. The study is based on ethnographic fieldwork with in depth interviews and observations at a plant science institute. The informants are at different career stages from Europe. Academic mobility across domestic organizations and global networks is an important topic in today’s discussion of knowledge circulation and its economical consequences. An aim with the peer’s network is to establish junior scientists in to a new scientific community. The junior plant scientists must learn and gain new scientific skills and achievements. They also form strong relationships with the peer and the fellow lab members, especially at a similar career stage. Gained scientific skills and an extended scientific family are central resources for the junior scientist’s career development. The concept “fictive kinship” is used to catch power and loyalty relations between people and groups that are not by blood bound to each other. As a family in a traditional, biological sense with inheritance of both power relations and material goods, there are informal leadership, symbolic capital, lab resources and machines to be inherited. The data collection is based on ethnographic field work with in depth interviews and observations.

    Consequences of world heritage production: Views from Visby2013Konferansepaper (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    In this keynote adress I discuss the case of The Hanseatic town of Visby, a small town in the island of Gotland, in the middle of Baltic Sea, which in 1995 was designated as Sweden’s sixth and the world’s 470th world heritage site. Using the findings from my earlier research project “Heritage Politics” as a starting point, I reflect over consequences of World Heritage production and address issues both at a local and specific level, and at a more global and abstract level, with the intention to show that the impact of World Heritage production both locally and at large, depend on how these levels become interconnected within the framework of the UNESCO World Heritage program.

    Islands, culture, and cultural production on an island2013Konferansepaper (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper deals with aspects of culture and cultural production in the island of Gotland, in the middle of the Baltic Sea. After a short introduction to Gotland, I will explore some of the key aspects that make this island stand out as different, and thereby constitute a core of its islandness. In the concluding part I will present a current cultural project, intended to serve as a kind of laboratory test of the content and scope of cultural resources and complexity of the island. In the presentation ‘culture’ is used in two meanings: as a society’s collective understandings, meanings, ideas and values, and as art, literature, music. Also ‘island’ is used in two meanings: as objects in the real world, and as representations, images, conceptions, a phenomenon of the mind. The project draws on and underlines the close interaction between these different meanings.

    The island and the islander2016Konferansepaper (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper builds on earlier research about islands and islandness in the Baltic region, in which a number of recurrent features of islandness have been defined. As a part of a current research project, tourist brochures from Gotland printed 1975 - 2015 are analyzed, in order to determine when and how tropes of “the island” and “the islander” are played out, and in connection with which features of islandness. After an overview of the tropes and features found in the brochures, I will discuss changes over time in the image production, branding and marketing of Gotland and other islands. To conclude I will reflect over these changes as part of a broader turn in the cultural representations of islands in Northwest Europe, and what possible significance this may have for island life and culture.

    Conceptualizing compulsory care: Articulation as a research strategy for new knowledge2014Inngår i: AAA (American Association of Anthropology) 2014, 2-7 December, Washington DC: USA: Panel: Between politics and socialization: Children, youth, parents and education, 2014Konferansepaper (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    In an ongoing dissertation project in ethnology the empirical field of secure units of compulsory care for delinquent youth is explored. Ethnographic methods and materials are used in the research project: primarily interviews and participatory observations in a secure unit for teenagers. Secure units in Sweden are publicly funded and governed; yet very closed from public observation. Entering the closed environment of secure units as a researcher brings about questions of ethics and of the researchers position.

       The field of compulsory care is dominated by knowledge produced within disciplines such as medicine, psychology and sociology. Concepts from these disciplines and their overarching ideas of what human beings are, influences the knowledge produced within this field. The term 'field' is used in a double sense and is thus referring to the empirical field, as well as to the research field, of compulsory care.

       This paper shall discuss the possibilities and challenges of knowledge production in a field of study where many different perspectives compete for the dominant position. It shall discuss further the practice of articulation, as used in the discourse theoretical logics approach, in the process of integrating concepts from different disciplines and research traditions into a new coherent whole. Articulation, here understood as the reflective judgment that results in a modification of elements, is a process where issues of self-reflexivity, positionality and the relationship of knowledge and power are brought together; articulated in a new way.

    Constructions of "Delinquency" in compulsory youth care2015Inngår i: 33 Nordic Ethnology and Folklore Conference, Co-productions, collaborations, -contestations coming together in Copenhagen, Copenhagen: Denmark, 2015, 18-21 August: Panel: 4, Conventions, conflicts and controversies in institutional settings, 2015Konferansepaper (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    In the borderlands of care and punishment, there are institutions for compulsory care. Teenagers with problems such as substance abuse, criminality and psychosocial difficulties are the target group of these institutions. Treatment under compulsion is not officially conceptualized as punishment but as protection for teenagers at risk. The care, or treatment, provided in institutions of compulsory care is organized and motivated out of various understandings of the teenagers receiving the care. In other words: the solutions are sprung out of certain problem formulations from staff and other professionals in the social sector.

    In this paper I investigate and analyze constructions of teenagers in the setting of so called secure units in Sweden. Observations and interviews, of practices and narratives with institutional staff, are analyzed to understand how "delinquency" is understood in this context. Using a foucauldian concept of power and a discourse theoretical logics approach, I understand these constructions as consisting of logics and fantasies in the intersection of gender, age, class, ethnicity, race, social background and biology. These various logics and fantasies are articulated together in different ways to motivate further action.

    Articulation is understood both as a methodological tool to organize the researchers view on empirical material, and as a research strategy to bring seemingly separate concepts and ideas together.

    This paper shall demonstrate the importance of studying the particularities of compulsory care to understand processes of normality and deviation more broadly.

    Constructions of "Delinquency" in compulsory youth care2015Inngår i: 33 Nordic Ethnology and Folklore Conference, Co-productions, collaborations, -contestations coming together in Copenhagen, Copenhagen: Denmark, 2015, 18-21 August: Panel: 4, Conventions, conflicts and controversies in institutional settings, 2015Konferansepaper (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    In the borderlands of care and punishment, there are institutions for compulsory care. Teenagers with problems such as substance abuse, criminality and psychosocial difficulties are the target group of these institutions. Treatment under compulsion is not officially conceptualized as punishment but as protection for teenagers at risk. The care, or treatment, provided in institutions of compulsory care is organized and motivated out of various understandings of the teenagers receiving the care. In other words: the solutions are sprung out of certain problem formulations from staff and other professionals in the social sector.

    In this paper I investigate and analyze constructions of teenagers in the setting of so called secure units in Sweden. Observations and interviews, of practices and narratives with institutional staff, are analyzed to understand how "delinquency" is understood in this context. Using a foucauldian concept of power and a discourse theoretical logics approach, I understand these constructions as consisting of logics and fantasies in the intersection of gender, age, class, ethnicity, race, social background and biology. These various logics and fantasies are articulated together in different ways to motivate further action.

    Articulation is understood both as a methodological tool to organize the researchers view on empirical material, and as a research strategy to bring seemingly separate concepts and ideas together.

    This paper shall demonstrate the importance of studying the particularities of compulsory care to understand processes of normality and deviation more broadly.

    From a residence to a home: Concepts of comfort and luxury of the Swedish ironmasters during the late 18th and erly 19th century2017Konferansepaper (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    My paper is a part of my research project that focuses on the ironmasters of Bergslagen, a district in Sweden where mining and metallurgic industry have been important since the Middle Ages. In my project I study how the ironmasters build a common identity and common goals, as well as forming themselves as an influential elite group in society. This paper focuses on their mansions and the idea of creating a home, suitable for an up and coming ironmaster. From the late 18th century, many of the ironmasters lived permanently on their estates close to the iron works. Smaller and simpler houses were kept in the cities, mostly Stockholm, to ensure connections to the corridors of power and to the pleasures of the country's capital city. The mansions were often situated in remote places, depending on good roads or at least a decent winter that made it possible to travel and transport heavy goods, such as the vital charcoal and iron, but also goods to the mansions. What did the ironmasters discuss regarding their homes? How did they furnished (and re-model) their mansions and what did they consider needed to be there, to make it a comfortable home? And what was 'comfort' for them and how did this correlate with how the notion of 'home' was conceptualized?

    Digital nomads and the Swedish supremacy – cosmopolitan and national identification among transnationally mobile Swedish Internet entrepreneurs2015Inngår i: 33. Nordic Ethnology and Folklore Conference: Copenhagen 2015, 2015Konferansepaper (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper is based on a research project studying national identification among Swedish Internet entrepreneurs and swe-des belonging to the start-up community in Berlin, New York, San Francisco and Stockholm. Swedish entrepreneurs have in recent years been establishing successful companies in the internet/tech-field, such as for example Skype and Spotify. A positive national identification and a good reputation of Swedes in this particular context, is sometimes considered an advantage for example when trying to raise venture capital and attract foreign investors. The paper examines to what extent and how “the Swedish” is something that is understood as a factor of success and how this identification is linked to a history of Swedish entrepreneurship, with parallels to the dot-com boom in the nineties, as well as present-day thri-ving companies. However, a national identification is sometimes de-emphasized in favor of a more cosmopolitan identifi-cation connected with the ideal of being mobile and a part of a global professional elite, rather being than associated with a particular nationality. The negotiation of a meritocratic identification as a cosmopolitan vagabond and expert; in this context sometimes referred to as a “digital nomad”, travelling between globally important tech hubs, and the privileged identification with a Swedish nationality is thus further examined.

    Utopian imaginaries of San Francisco among tech-entrepreneurs2015Inngår i: Utopias, Realities, Heritages: Ethnographies for the 21st Century, 2015Konferansepaper (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper takes its starting point from a research project studying Swedish tech-entrepreneurs, living and working in Europe and in the US. Sweden has in recent years been playing a relevant role in the internet/tech-field with successful companies such as for example Skype and Spotify. The paper sets out to investigate San Francisco, as both an actual and an imagined place. Migrating to San Francisco (and/or Silicon Valley) is for the internet/tech-community primarily associated with opportunities for success - and it is for many entrepreneurs in the field regarded as the ultimate location to live and work. How is San Francisco constructed as a mythical, imagined place that holds relevance for the tech scene? And how is this image mediated in different channels such as for example social and traditional media? The social ideal of making a difference in a global context can be regarded as an important value for the Internet/tech community but the utopian image of San Francisco as the most important global tech hub is at the same time challenged by the city's social problems such as poverty and segregation. How do the skilled migrants of the transnational network that is the tech community experience this conflict? Including perspectives from both residents and prospective residents of San Francisco/Silicon Valley, this paper explores envisioned migration, as well as actual everyday life and concrete experiences.

    Communicating values: religious transmission to and among young Christians2011Konferansepaper (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    This presentation is based on a qualitative research project involving young people who are active in an evangelical church in Sweden. Using their narratives and experiences as a starting point, I will discuss how religious values and beliefs can be transmitted to and within a group of young Christians, and how this process may involve negotiation, interpretation and reinterpretation of those values.

    For young people, who are active in a congregation and its youth organization, religious transmission takes place on several levels and in various environments. There is for instance an official religious message that comes e.g. from the adult representatives of the main congregation, and from the youth leaders. Here the communication is in many ways quite direct, and it may involve a level of discipline, that becomes visible if the implicit and explicit rules within the congregation are not followed. But there is also an ongoing process within the youth group, where beliefs and values are discussed and transmitted within the peer group. The communication process on this level is in several ways different, since the relations and power relations between the individuals are different.

    In their everyday lives, the participants in my study also encounter ideas about what it means, or should mean, to be a young Christian today, in contexts outside the church, such as in school. Such more general conceptions are subsequently related to their own faith and the more specific ideas and values that are transmitted in the church context.

    Feeling at home? An emotion work perspective on involvement in a Christian youth organization

    Author: Maria Zackariasson (Södertörn University)

    Abstract

    As this paper will discuss, being active in a religious organization is not something automatically accepted or uncontroversial among young people in Sweden, a society which in several aspects is characterized by a high level of secularization. Still, a number of youths are engaged in Christian youth organizations, even though they do not necessarily come from religiously active homes. What contributes to their choice to become active in this kind of organization and what makes them want to stay active there? These are questions discussed in this paper, which is based on a qualitative research project about young people active in the Christian youth organization Equmenia in Sweden.

    The results from the project show that the experience of feeling at home, being able to be oneself and being part of a community where they felt everyone was accepted, were significant contributing factors for the youths' will to stay active in the organization. In the paper I use an emotion theoretical approach, with a focus on emotion work and everyday rituals and collective practices, to discuss how such an inclusive atmosphere and feeling of togetherness could be created. But also how such rituals and collective practices at times had the opposite effect, in the sense that they created atmospheres that could contribute to that certain situations and contexts were experienced as strange and unpleasant, and to that the youths felt out of place rather than at home.

    Teaching gender and sexuality: Experiences from student teachers2012Konferansepaper (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    The Swedish national school curricula for pre-school and for the compulsory school system include an explicit focus on gender issues, connected to aspects such as gender equality and sexuality. The overarching aim is to promote all individuals’ opportunities to express themselves in whatever way they want to, without being hindered by implicit or explicit norms and traditions. My aim with this paper is to discuss how these issues can be incorporated in the teacher education, using a particular course at Södertörn University as my starting point. During this course, the students learn basic facts about how the body works, and the didactics for teaching this to small children. But they also learn about societal and cultural aspects of the body. Parallel to learning for instance about x and y chromosomes they have seminars on gender roles and sexuality, and so on. During the practicum period that is included in the course, the students are to create a lesson where they use a children’s book to talk about different kinds of families, and afterwards reflect upon their experiences in a short written paper. The suggested books are selected based on how they show family constellations that in various ways differ from the nuclear family, but the books also open up for discussions around having two mothers or two fathers, and thus the opportunity to talk about LGBT issues. In my paper I will discuss the experiences students have had when doing this assignment, using the written course papers as the basis for my analysis. The theoretical framework used for analyzing these experiences and examples includes the concepts masculinity, femininity and heteronormativity. The preliminary findings show that the students’ experiences differ considerably from each other, and that the focus on gender and sexuality that is present in the national school curriculum is not uncontroversial among the students or among the supervising teachers out in the schools.The paper is of relevance to Nordic educational research since it raises the issue of how gender and sexuality issues can be incorporated in the teacher education also for teachers for the younger age groups.

    The right to be different?: Growing up as a practising Christian in Sweden2011Konferansepaper (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    In a global perspective, Sweden is often regarded and described as one of the most secularised countries in the world. Compared to countries in the south of Europe, Latin America or the US, religion is seen as much less influential in society and in the everyday lives of the individuals. Even though this view incertain respects can be contested, Protestantism and the Church of Sweden are for instance still significant forces in the Swedish society, these views of Sweden as secularised, have consequences for the daily lives of young people who are practising a religion. Religion has for example not a very prominent place in the mainstream youth culture, and pronounced religious piety among youth is in the general discourse described as problematic rather than as commendable. So what is it like to be a practising Christian in a society and an environment where this is regarded as unusual at best and strange at worst? How are the religious rights of young people affected by the expectations they meet from parents and friends, but also from the school and the congregation they are a part of? How do they navigate between these different environments in their everyday lives? This presentation will be based on a qualitative research project involving young people who are active in one of the independent evangelical churches in Sweden: The mission covenant church. Their experiences of and views on being a practising young Christian in contemporary Sweden will be discussed in relation to concepts such as religious rights, youth culture, and fundamental values.

    ’They shouldn’t work all by themselves’: Supervisors’ understandings of student independence in undergraduate projects2018Inngår i: NERA 2018 - 46th CONGRESS Educational Research: Boundaries, Breaches and Bridges: Abstracts, Oslo: University of Oslo , 2018, s. 237-238Konferansepaper (Annet vitenskapelig)

    Title: “They shouldn’t work all by themselves!” Supervisors’ understandings of student independence in undergraduate projects

    Authors: Maria Zackariasson, professor, Södertörn University & Jenny Magnusson, lecturer, Södertörn University

    That independence is a concept of scholarly interest in relation to higher education, is evident within the research field on independent learning, as well as in research on supervision within higher education (eg Broad 2006; Cukurova et al 2017; Gurr 2010; Lau 2017; Lee 2008). That it also in other ways constitutes a significant concept within the academic context, is evident for instance in how independence in the Swedish Higher Education Ordinance is described as one of the main goals of higher education (Swedish Council for Higher Education 1993).

    At the same time, independence is characterized by a certain conceptual ambiguity, and, consequently, tends to be understood differently in different academic contexts, both nationally, internationally and interdisciplinary. This may pose a problem not least in relation to the supervision of undergraduate projects. In this paper we examine how supervisors understand the concept independence and how their understandings might influence their attitude to and practice of supervision of undergraduate projects. The analysis is based on focus group interviews with supervisors from two education programs, teacher education and journalism, in two countries, Sweden and Russia.

    In our findings we highlight and discuss several understandings of independence that were evident in our material, and in which phases of the undergraduate project these were regarded to be most significant. The theoretical framework for the paper connects to how a number of concepts that are central within higher education, such as criticality/critical thinking, learner autonomy and independent learning, tend to be characterized by conceptual ambiguity (cf Borg and Al-Busaidi 2012; Gardner 2007; Moore 2011). Using Wittgenstein’s ideas on family resemblances, we discuss how the concept independence may be understood in relation to such associated concepts (Wittgenstein 1958).

    The paper is of relevance to Nordic educational research through its focus on a concept that is rarely discussed and defined, even though it is most significant within higher education and for supervisors’ attitudes and didactic choices.
